Dear bugman, I arrived home tonight to the flutter of a thousand wings (well, actually more like 200 wings). After turning on the lights, these guys went crazy. I live in a ground floor in-law apartment in a residential neighborhood of San Francisco. Possibly related is that we had rain a couple days ago, and there are several access points to the crawlspace of the house in my apt. Any ideas? Any remedies for minimizing future outbreaks? Thanks for taking a look!
You have Termites. The reproductive kings and queens, known as Alates, swarm on a nuptial flight, often after a rain. We would suggest professional assistance.
